Internal Auditing means Using your Brain

This has been a dilemma for so long - making other people understand how literally brain-rattling and mind-boggling Internal Auditing is. At least in our company.

A lot of people have long since underestimated our department, and so far, I have grown tired of trying to prove them wrong - because I have just realized that I need not try. They ARE wrong.

Internal auditing has been a burden and a blessing. A blessing for it flexes our brain tissues, wears out our thinking caps, and even tires our logic and rational thinking, which they cannot get from simply doing the same thing everyday - checking receipts, updating their excel files, saving, printing, typing, updating the system, depositing the cash, coming back, typing again, saving, printing, going home. A blessing for it allows us to exercise judgment and character analysis, profiling people we meet just like in Criminal Minds. A blessing for it develops our grammar, improves our sentence construction, polishes our writing skills - …

Farmville Friend Fertilizers & Dairy Farms

Image
Have you noticed the updates on Farmville? Try visiting a neighbors farm and you'll see these icons at the bottom left of your farmville window, these are the fertilizers. You get them by helping out friends  in their farms performing missions like pulling out weeds, shooing away foxes and birds, etc.. those kinds of missions that just pop out of nowehere. And apparently, you do not get the fertilizers if you go directly to a neighbor's farm to help out. Currently, I ran out of these fertilizers, so I just borrowed these pics from lightchan.



You would normally receive about 5 of these fertilizer bags which you can use to add "sparkle" to your friends' crops. You would later notice that fertilized crops have the sparkles on them. Just like these berries, pic taken from Carla's farm. (click on the image to enlarge)

And when the crops are ready for harvest, you would see the difference in size as compared to the crops that were not fertilized, see the pic of my f…

Lesser Facebook Friends in Live Feed!

Image
That was why my readership from my facebook friends has slowly dwindled! Facebook has made updates with their system and this is what happened:

The new facebook setup has limited the number of friends's newsfeeds to where your updates are published to a default of 250; meaning, if you have 1,000 friends, your updates will only be published in the newsfeeds of just 250 of them! Imagine! (This is also why Mafia Wars jobs have slow response, and even adoption of farmville animals... lol!)

So to remedy this, go to your home/newsfeed. Then look at the very bottom part, there's a blue bar with Edit Options at the right area: (click image to enlarge)




Click on that Edit Options thing and this will pop-out:



Change the Maximum number of friends in Live Feed into your actual number of friends or even more.

Got it?

Good.

Stupid Questions deserve Sarcastic Answers

Image
I told you before, but you didn't listen.

Ask me stupid questions and you'll get annoying answers slathered with sarcasm and a dash of tactlessness.

Like, which is harder, typing two phrases to ask something..

Or, click once on that link/tab titled "PROFILE"?

Hmm?

Sheesh.

Need Viagra? Just ask your partner to FART!

Image
As crazy as it may sound, I know a family who would totally be amused at this new research thing... *ehem*

Anyway, blogs around the net has started abuzz regarding this new "discovery" - hydrogen sulfide in flatulence can help out a male having a bit of difficulty having an erection (really?) to actually have one, without shelling out a lot to buy viagra online, or offline.

According to them, the hydrogen sulfide in those stinky farts have recently been shown to relax the walls of major blood vessels, allowing more blood flow, and I think, making it go full attention.

An Italian university, though it still remains unnamed as of this post, has found enzymes that produce Hydrogen Sulfide in human penile tissue.Injecting this tissue with H2S dilated the blood vessels, while injecting it into the penises of live rats produced erections. (Rats have erections? Really?)

So for the layman, the advantages: a free source of, ehrm, standing power for guys - doesn't cost a single pen…

So un- "Uncathy"!

Image
"Uncathy" is a word coined by an old friend, if not a very close one (ehem) - from high school, King, meant to denote "the state of being sugar and spice and everything nice...." I would have suggested he used "powerpuffy-ish", but no. As crooked as I can be at times, I'd prefer the "uncathy" term even if it's a negation of my own name. From all that I can dig up from my facebook statuses and pic comments, the second time (I couldn't find the first one, I'm sure there was another incident before this but I couldn't trace it anymore) King used that when he posted a comment to my status "Busy. Renovating."

He said he doesn't want a copyright, but to contribute to popular culture. harhar.

Anyway, here's a un-uncathy moment. Blessed are those who can understand bisaya. lol!

I am Free. I can Express.

I started this blog in February of 2007 with this post just lurking around, discovering it because I was searching the net for added means of income that I can do without explicitly selling things, or starting auctions, or all these. The web was abuzz with SEO, Search Engine Optimization; search engine results came up with "Blogging: Make money at home" or "The Easiest Way to Make Money Online" and things like that. And so I tried it out.

Several months later, I was still excited about it, trying out most, but definitely not all, of online advise regarding online branding and marketing, until such time that I can google my own name without landing on the PRC's CPA Board Exam Results. Someone said I have been successful with my personal branding because I can search for my own name.

It has been, what, more than 2 years and all I have is an erratic number of subscribers! It's a bit frustrating because what I wanted was to write things that are both informative …
